    How can I view several windows at the same time?, e.g. if I open my doc's window and then a folder within, that works fine, I can see both, but if I open another folder from within the second folder, the second folder disappears (although it is available from the taskbar) but I occasionally need to see all three windows on the screen at the same time. Is this possible? I have tried Tools/Folder Options/Open each folder in its own window. XP Service pack 3.
    Thanks if you can help.

    Press [Winkey][E] to open another instance of Windows Explorer. Do it again, and again, and again ... you get the idea. :)

    Thanks SpywareDr, that works but the new window is a long way back in My Computer, so I have to go through the same steps again to get to the folder I want. However, although not perfect, it solves the problem. Through trial and error I have found another way of solving the issue which is to click on the interested folders in turn and choose Tile Vertically or Tile Horizontally by right clicking on the group in the taskbar.
    Many thanks for your help, this is now solved.

    Excellent. Try copying the path from one to the other.
